Informatica announces today its acquisition of best of breed MDM vendor Siperian. Siperian primarily (historically) focused on MDM of party data (such as patient, customer etc), but more recently started to sell into other master data domains. The move is a great sign for the MDM market – it shows the growth we saw through 2009 (despite the recession) is attractive to vendors in related markets. Which vendors will get acquired next?
